    Blouse:

    Camille Charriere of Camille Over The Rainbow was spotted pairing a pinstriped-lapel coat with Dries Van Noten’s Stripe Print Blouse from the F/W 13 collection. The gray beanie and oversized boyfriend coat keep the blouse from feeling too buttoned-up.

    Wide-Leg Pant:

    While attending shows in London, Pernille Teisbaek of Look De Pernille wore Acne’s white Kat Pinstripe Wool-Blend Wide-Leg Trousers ($536) with a white turtleneck and striped jacket from Marni. Opting for white on top keeps these pants from looking like a costume.
